Day 34 in my trek to meet Mickey at the Magic Kingdom
Today’s plan is all about the food: Crock Pot Chicken a la Criolla: this is what I just spent a half an hour preparing. Now it will cook slowly for the next six hours. Thank you skinnytaste.com for the recipe!
Mrs. Bryan (Mike’s boss’s Mrs.) has been giving us delicious fresh vegetables from her garden. So tonight with the chicken we’ll have a vegetable salad with peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers and green beans.
Mike will grill zucchini slices brushed with olive oil. The last time Emi visited, she taught us to cut an eggplant, set it on a rack, salt it and let it sit to get some of the water out before you grill it. The result was firm, delicious eggplant. We use the same method with large zucchini. The results are scrumptious.
Here’s to planning healthy meals, preparing them and then partaking guilt-free.
Meet you at the Kingdom!
